with the united states both economic and security. the obama administration really doesn't want to revisit all of that, but president obama said on the record he understand that a new party coming to power will want to take a look at all the underlying agreements negotiated with the united states by the liberal democratic party. the big issues that will be on the table between these two leaders -- climate change, north korea, and trade. one other issue, of course, is afghanistan with the democratic party of japan came in, the prime minister decided to end a long-standing refueling operation the japanese were conducting with vessels in the indian ocean. but in exchange, the japanese government has put up funds in reconstruction aid. botin the main, this summit, the second time the two leaders have met is not going to produce any new u.s.-japanese announcement on any of the issues i discussed but it will be an opportunity for the two to discuss trade, north korea and climate change. steve: major, just a moment ago the white house office of the press secretary released something. apparently the u
bring about a new energy frontier for the united states of america and that we would be partners with the rest of our agencies in bringing about a solution for the realities of climate change in which we face. in the last nine months, our team has worked closely with members of the white house and with congress as we move forward with that agenda. you will hear much more about this. i see our department as being the energy suppliers for the united states of america. we produce about 30% of the natural gas in the united states. we produced about 40% of the coal that we use here in america. . . ls which this department has had responsibility for overseeing its production from the public lands we also have opened up a new chapter for america in the department of interior. and that's our efforts to send up renewable energy and really to engage in the energy revolution that we see spreading across the united states of america. and so the efforts you'll hear about today are about how we are capturing the wind from the high plains and from the deserts in arizona and we are capturing the
basically has completely destroyed the power of the united states by his namby-pamby stuff on intelligence, by his huge budget deficit and gigantic expansion of the debt. he's made the united states into a beg ar nation. and if you like obama, you think he's weak. if you don't like him, you think he's just wrong and sometimes bad intentioned. i learned something the other day that just blew my minds. obama announced that he wasn't going to put missiles in poland, and he did that on september 17. now, apart from my wife's birthday, that date has no significance to me. but to the polls it does. it was the date russia invaded poland in 1939. and to remove the missile shield on that gate was effectively telling the russians, come on in, she's yours. and obama knew it. had to have known it. that state department would have flagged that and said don't do it on the 17th. he did it to send a message to russia saying, she's all yours, kid. sean: that's a frightening thought. dick, good to see you. don't forget, we're going to have the first cable exclusive interview with sarah palin on her brand-ne
president obama has held frequently here in the united states, a question and answer session. >that kind of thing does not happen in china. the president's words were blocked online and the event shown only on regional tv. he told the crowd that he is a supporter of non-century ship, adding that he kills a free flow of information only strengthens society. >> the more freely information flows, the stronger the society becomes because then citizens of countries around the world can hold their own government accountable. i have a lot of critics of the united states o can say all things about me. i think that makes our democracy stronger. >> he then moved to beijing with the chinese leader. his host greeted him warmly and the president used his face-to- face meeting to echo his team. >> we do not seek to impose any system of government on any other nation. but we also don't believe that the prciples that we stand for are unique to our nation. these freedoms of expression and worship, access to information and political participation, we believe, are universal rights. >> president obama says
is the optimal solution to provide necessary medical treatment to everyone and the united states in a way that controls health care costs. pnhp doesn't, however, take a position on how congress members should vote on the legislation that is currently proceeding for congress. we do provide information to members about whether the legislation is likely to be ctive, and how icompes to a national single payer health care system. we joined the many health care reform advocates across the nation who are disappointed by the health insurance reform legislation that is passing through congress. we, like you, are seriously concerned by the health care environment in the united states. we are saddened by the number of people, our patience, family and friends who are donner and because they cannot receive or for access to health care. we are saddened by the number of people facing bankruptcy or foreclosure of their homes and those who are suffering needlessly because they cannot afford or have access to medical treatment. the anticipated a health care debate this year that would focus on the trees st
later, after the pentagon papers, erwin griswold, the solicitor general of the united states, who argued the pentagon papers case on behalf of the nixon administration, wrote a story for "the washington post" saying that in fact there was no national security issues whatsoever, and that he as a lawyer had to use every bit of ingenuity and creativity to even make an arguable case pits if anyone wants to read that, i am sure the attorneys in this room would.

't have enough jails there why do we have any jails empty in the united states at taxpayer expense? maybe that's a whole another issue. why do we have a whole federal prison sitting there? is it because some of these prisoners in california are not federal prisoners? peter: only 200 minimum security prisoners at that facility at this point. and we don't mix state and federal prison population. gretchen: but we will bring terrorists there? on its face it seems weird to me that we wouldn't be able to find some use of this prison, instead of bringing some of the world's worst terrorists there. steve: and we were talking about whoever becomes members of that jury for can a lead sheik mohammed their families could be a target. the people of the surrounding area there in illinois, some of them feel like you bring these guys here then suddenly we will be the focus of jihadi and stuff like that. we don't like that. congressman kirk who is going to join us in 45 minutes wrote this letter to the administration. quote: steve: mark kirk is going to be joining us very promptly to talk about that gitmo
for president. >> well, here is the big question. do you ever want to be president of the united states? >> that certainly isn't on my radar screen right now. but when you consider some of the ordinary turning into extraordinary events that have happened in my life, i am not one to predict what will happen in a few years. my ambition, if you will, my desire, is to help our country in whatever role that may be. and i cannot predict what that will be, what doors would be opened in the year 2012. >> we were talking, she used the word ambition. if she had said my ambition -- my passion or commitment it would have had a different reaction to people and they pay attention to that. sean: you're really good at what you do. you advise politicians and advise a lot of people in the public arena how to deal with the media. but maybe if she -- one of the things she talks about in the campaign is she couldn't be sarah. if she would have listened to you, and become the little contrived -- does she become a little canned, does she become a little -- >> she became contrived and canned because of what wa
trafficking is actually done out of the prison system in the united states. particularly the california prison system. and he mentioned one prison, pelican bay, in specific. and then i came back, and i found that there are all these cell phones in prisons which enables a group, name live the mexican mafia, to essentially use cell phones to give directives right out of prisons on hits, on territories, on dealers, and i think this is a very serious thing. i've introduced legislation that would make cell phones contraband in federal prisons with possession punishable by up to an additional year in prison. what do you think of this? what are you doing? it is a real problem, mr. attorney general. >> it is a real problem, senator. i had experience with that when i was the united states attorney here in washington, d.c. rapel edmonds was convicted, sent to jail and continued to run his drug enterprise from prison, was convicted again for that. the maintenance of cell phones in prison, i think, is unacceptable and i think we have to find ways in which we conif i skate them. you're right, they ought to

interference, if you will. >> reporter: unemployment in the united states is now more than 10%. the highest level since 1983. if you were president, what would you do about unemployment? >> i'd start cutting taxes and allowing our small businesses to keep more of what their earning, more of what they are producing, what they own and earn so they can start reinvesting in their businesses and expand and hire more people. not punishing them by forcing health care reform down their throats, by forcing an energy policy down their throats that ultimately will tax them more, and cost them more to stayn business. those are back asspa asswards w dealing with the economy. >> reporter: you have a way with words. you said to charlie gibson that there are places in alaska that you can see russia. do you feel that alaska's proximity to russia from whatever place you can see it, is significant foreign policy experience? >> it's very significant, and we are a gate keeper for the continent. so, for national security reasons and for energy independence and resource development reasons, alaska should be recog

these people to the united states. i can't imagine the people of illinois would like to have these prisoners incars rated this their state. i expect it will be a huge issue in illinois, probably in the u.s. senate race up there next year. >> chris: and is there anything you can do in terms of blocking funding for it? >> we will be looking for ways to do it and hopefully the senate and house will speak on this issue. >> chris: let's turn to healthcare reform. senate democrats are expected to bring a bill to the floor this week. do you have the 41 votes in the senate to prevent them from even bringing it to the floor? >> what we do know for sure is this is a bill that cuts medicare and raises taxes and raises insurance premiums. it has been in harry reid's office for six weeks and the other 99 senators have not seen it. we ought to at least have as much time for the other 99 senators and all of the american people to take a look at this bill as majority leader reid has had. the only way to guarantee that for sure would be to delay the process to allow everyone to fully understand what is in th

them for karzai or is the united states sending these troops because of the united states' own security interests. if it's the united states' own security interests, which is the argument that the president makes, then the president is somewhat undercut his own leverage with karzai because his biggest argument to karzai is if you don't clean up the corruption, if you don't train the afghan troops, then the u.s. troops are leaving. and karzai can come back and say, and who does that hurt? >> david, let me ask you about the costs of the strategy. we assessed the financial costs of the troops and more troops, it is enormous. i was talking a few minutes to general mccaffrey on last hour and he said an honest accounting of strategy to succeed is $15,000 casualties in a five-year commitment. that's what it will take in order to be successful. if the president is willing to ask the american people for such a commitment, do you think the american people are willing to pay it? >> you have to remember at this point the united states is in year eight of this war, so if you took a strategy of five
think we're actually fighting with a full force and might of our united states of america? really? are we fighting to win in irak and afghanistan anymore? do you think we're going to win in afghanistan at this point? the president says he needs a new plan now, he is going to start all over again now. yeah. don't pass the judgment on fort hood. i can't make a decision on afghanistan, and by the way, russia, syria and iran are our new friends and by the way, poland and england, you're kind of on your own. look at this board, america. look. i'm an alcoholic. i have bottomed out before. i have thought my life, my career, my family was over. i thought it was over. i didn't know i had a second chance. we always got a second chance, but you got to decide. i got a problem and i want to live. when you approach that bottom, you have two choices. you just let it go, and if you don't stop pretty soon, you will die. you will destroy yourself, or you say, wait, wait. put the brakes on here, i got a problem, but admitting that we have a problem is the first step, america. we got a problem. it's
stronger and more capable of action and turn it into a strong partner for united states. we can build a strong partnership on this basis. first with russia, china and india. for ladies and gentlemen, the world we live in today is both freer and more integrated than ever before. the fall of the berlin wall, the technological revolution and information and communication technology and the rise of china, india and other countries and dynamic economies, all of this has changed the world of the 21st century into something completely different from what we knew in the 20th century, and this is a good thing, for freedom is the very essence of our economy and our society. . man ca e he's free. but what is also clear is that freedom does not stand alone. it is freedom in responsibility and freedom to show and shoulder responsibility. for this the world needs an underlying order. but the near collapse. but the near collapse. financial market has shown when is none, when there is no underpinning order. there is -- if there is one lesson the world has learned from the financial crisis of last yea

hurt as bad as you can get. every time it comes to small people in the united states they say they do not have enough money. now they are going to allocate 40,000 more troops with $50 billion of cost? the money is catching fire from flying out of the treasury so quickly. why can we not help our own people? the people that pay the taxes? this is a waste, these men dying for stupidity. host: how closely are the american people starting to link health care legislation with the war in afghanistan? guest: a good question. something that the liberal members are starting to ask about, they are going after this point more precisely, suggesting that the money made in afghanistan, the more made the better. it is a longstanding argument going back to vietnam and even before. i am not sure that there is that much of a direct linkage in the minds of many people. many people still see the afghanistan situation as a response to 9/11, even if it has not been handled particularly well. host: another david is calling, this one is a republican from st. petersburg, florida. caller: the message that needs
of recovery was effectively a recession for working families in the united states. now, they have to recover from two recessions. if you are unfortunate enough to try to decide to send your kid to college this year or last year, on fortunate enough to hold onto a small business, this is a life-changing. in many people's lives across my state and all across the country. finally, to find ourselves in a place where there were institutions that were described as too big to fail and it was the taxpayers that had to bail them out after going through a time when i saw their wages decline and opportunities for their children to manage is an incredible insult. this important legislation will put us a much better position going forward to prevent that kind of thing from happening. it is not impossible -- to is not possible to predict every bit as real market. we want to create a well balanced piece of legislation that does not produce unexpected consequences but will protect our country from ever again going through what we are going through today. i am very pleased to join my colleagues here today. i
on that issue a couple of years ago, 94-3 against bringing these people to the united states. i can't imagine the people of illinois would like to have these prisoners incars rated this their state. i expect it will be a huge issue in illinois, probably in the u.s. senate race up there next year. >> chris: and is there anything you can do in terms of blocking funding for it? >> we will be looking for ways to do it and hopefully the senate and house will speak on this issue. >> chris: let's turn to healthcare reform. senate democrats are expected to bring a bill to the floor this week. do you have the 41 votes in the senate to prevent them from even bringing it to the floor? >> what we do know for sure is this is a bill that cuts medicare and raises taxes and raises insurance premiums. it has been in harry reid's office for six weeks and the other 99 senators have not seen it. we ought to at least have as much time for the other 99 senators and all of the american people to take a look at this bill as majority leader reid has had. the only way to guarantee that for sure would be to delay the p

. at the conclusion of this soundbite, you will hear for the first time the president of the united states warning of a double-dip recession in the united states. listen. >> there may be some tax provisions that can encourage businesses to hire sooner rather than sitting on the sidelines so we're taking a look at those. i think it is important, though, to recognize that if we keep on adding to the debt even in the midst of this recovery, that at some point people could lose confidence in the u.s. economy in a way that could actually lead to a double-dip recession. brian: i think it also shows his impatience with the fact that the hiring is not coming back as quick. the unemployment number is higher than anyone projected. and on top of that he's saying, look, i see the polls, i see what happened two weeks ago. america is concerned about our national credit card. member deficits don't matter. clearly it does matter. gretchen: in both virginia and new jersey both of those states went to republican governors. the number one concern from voters at the exit polls was the economy by a huge margin so a lo
state dinner for the president. something they were she lighting as this relationship between the united states and india on a host of global issues, how critical this is, but the follow-up stories obviously after this was very little about the event itself and so much about this incident, and then, of course, the investigation and the big questions as to how this could happen and certainly this concern as well here at white house. i mean, this is a president -- all presidents obviously are targets. they are dangerous situations which have to be defused all the time, but in this particular case there are threats against this president. there's been a lot of concern about that, and so this just shows as one representative already talking about, here is someone who is a possible target by extremists and yet someone like this was able to slip into the white house, and so a lot of concerns here and certainly a distraction, something that they did not welcome at all. >> james, i assume that this really goes both ways. it's not just the obama administration. when i was covering president bush
followers, but he is the president of the united states of america, we need to question what he's doing, but i'm trying to give him a good shot and hope that that didn't impact him. sean: i think we've given him a good shot. you know, you reach a lot of women on "the view." you have a huge audience out there. and by the way, congrats on the emmy award. >> thanks. thank you. sean: families are in trouble. unemployment, if you really add it up, it's closer to 17%. >> 14% in my home state. sean: it's frightening. women look up to you, they reach out to you. what do you say to people, my husband lost a job, i lost a job, debt is through the roof, we're passing it on to our kids and grandkids. how do you feel about that aspect of obama? >> i have this fear in the back of my mind, and quite possibly it could be because i'm up all night with feedings of a baby and i have time to think about things beyond the normal time frame necessary, but i have a feeling, are they letting things get so bad that then we are begging for the government to help us out? sean: well, the government has taken over
's been eight years. i love the military. i believe in the united states cause in afghanistan and in iraq. but that's a separate story. suicides are at an all time high. that's real. hasan's situation, again, is the sociopathic loser who seeks to inflict injury and pain on others. >> doesn't have anything to do with post-traumatic stress or anything why did he do it? >> because the yankees won. because it's raining today. bill: why do these people do it. >> because they seek to make specifics comport with their bigger themes. their societal themes. they want a story that has a moral to the story. bill: it's bs. >> in this case it is absolutely. >> geraldo, everybody. up next, colonel ralph peters on the fort hood assassin. later, the authors of a new book sarah palin have exclusive details about the speech she wasn't able to give or allowed to give on election night. those reports after these messages. lt. colonel wrath peertsd, the author of the book the war after armageddon. colonel peters column on the for the hood massacre will appear in the "new york post" tomorrow. you heard bernie
, there are members of the congress who sent a letter to the president of the united states back in april request agameting to sit down for the very purposes of doing what you just described. you know, being at the table and talking about health care. they're still waiting for the meeting. the senate and house leadership staffs weren't a part of those late-night meetings that took place for the very bill that was voted on. all this dog and pony show with grassley is nice theater but the staff, senior staff and leadership of the party have not been at the table and it's not been a bipartisan process and over 800 amendments on the house bill alone were rejected. so, you mean to tell me out of 800 ideas put on the table, not one of them could be put in the bill? this is the frustration that a lot of people have with this process, not to mention the fact that we were told this was all going to be transparent and it hasn't been. >> well, i grant you all your arguments and all your points about the way the house operates because the house has different rules and, as you know, they certainly were not wo
it now. let me show you a new poll that just came out about the president of the united states. i find this confounding. it's a public policy poll. it's done by a democratic pollster. here's the number, 52% of republicans nationwide think a.c.o.r.n., the welfare group, stole the election for president obama, versus 27% who think he won it legitimately. your party is so tough on obama that a majority of them told a pollster that a.c.o.r.n. is competent enough as an organization to steal a presidential election and give it to the democrat. what do you view -- is this about a psyche out there that people are mad at the guy and willing to say, yeah, they stole it? even a.c.o.r.n. did it? what's going out there in the minds of people? >> i wouldn't invest a lot of money based on what that poll says. i did see a poll today or had one discussed with me that said the president that 73% of people of the united states find the president likable or think he's a nice person. >> 74%, yeah. >> but 40% agree with him. and i find both of those numbers very realistic. people want our president to succe
. it is here to fight the war on terror. the united states and its allies came to afghanistan after september 11. afghanistan was troubled like hell before that, too. nobody bothered about us. >> ifill: afterward, published reports said those remarks rankled american officials as they wrestle with sending more troops to afghanistan. president obama has been weighing options for months, and today, in china, he talked about it with cnn. >> i will announce that decision certainly in the next several weeks. the pieces involved number one, making sure that the american people understand we do have a vital interest in making sure that al qaeda cannot attack us and that they can't use afghanistan as a safe haven. we have a vital interest in making sure that afghanistan is sufficiently stable that it can't infect the entire region with violent extremism. >> ifill: that decision will come as public support for the afghan war continues to fall. a "washington post"-abc news poll published today found 52% of americans now believe the war has not been worth fighting. support for the war in other nato-memb
. listen to this. >> it is the job of united states congress to give americans confidence that there is a system in place that works for and protect them. this proposal would create a new architecture to make our financial institutions more transparent, more responsible, and more accountable to the american people. sean: more transparent? now, i know that is what you are all about, senator, and i guess that is why it took you one year to release those documents about that sweetheart deal that you got. one dirty secret has now been exposed that reveals a very different story that exists behind the scenes. it turns out that it was barack obama's staff that leaked the reports of john edwards' $400 haircuts, which went to show just out of touch was with everyday americans. the man behind it was an obama campaign manager. the things we know about it john edwards, having a baby with an elected mr. is, it is not exactly watergate. and forget the democratic health-care bill -- having a baby with an alleged mistress. sean: president obama was quick to brag about the ama endorsing t
music? >> complaining something he is doing as president of united states becomes a political issue it's like really? welcome to heavy burden and responsibility of the presidency of the united states. yeah, what you do is going to become a political issue. you can't be burdened by that. >> i agree with you that he is in that, he is like that. when he doesn't like something. but i with sympathize with obama here, i absolutely do. he has to live his life. to give up golf because we have an afghan conflict? i want the president to have some relaxation, his mind to be clear. i want him to go out on a date with his wife. if his wife wants to see a broadway show, more happiness to him. i think it's ridiculous and petty. the american public should live them as man and wife and leave them alone. okay, carlson, hoover? >> what did i say marriage is separate. marriage is a work in progress. >> bill: i hate that word, work in progress. >> that is a big issue. >> it is a work in progress. >>. >> glenn: now we have a serious story for the warriors tonight. in connecticut, west of hartford, there is
task force is shopping for potential locations here in the united states to house terror suspects from guantanamo bay. illinois officials said today a prison there is among those being considered to house detainees once gitmo is closed, likely sometime next year. all this comes just days after the obama administration announced it would try 9/11 suspects at a federal court here in new york. and that decision sparked a new round of outrage today, from among others the man who was mayor of new york at the time of the attacks. we have two reports starting with nbc's jeff rossen. >> reporter: returning to the scene of the crime amid new fears, alleged 9/11 mastermind khalid shaikh mohammed and four other accused plotters will stand trial not before a military tribunal at guantanamo bay, but instead inside a federal courthouse, just blocks from ground zero. this weekend the political line in the sand with outrage on the right. >> maybe the obama administration doesn't think we're at war with them, but they're very clear on the fact that they're at war with us. >> they're going to do everyth

and the president's long answer took on the tone of a polite lecture. >> i have a lot of cit nix the united states who can say all kinds of things about me. i actually think that that makes our democracy stronger and it makes me a better leader because it forces me to hear opinions that i don't want to hear. >> reporter: the white house said the rebuke was aimed at china's leaders but if they were watching it on t.v., most chinese were not because the government allowed it to run on only one local channel in shanghai. in the rest of china, they aired a open opera. but there did appear to be a crack in the great firewall. a cbs news analysis shows mr. obama's comments were posted in full on government web sites available to more than 300 million chinese with access to the internet. if that's a moral victory for the president, he'll probably want to savor it, because otherwise this visit to china is expected to bring more disappointment than success. >> as you know, this is my first visit to china. >> reporter: the president says the top goal in coming here is to create jobs for americans by convinc
